I think this may be a matter of regionalism. The phrasebook version makes perfect sense, however in Mexico, "A cada quien su gusto" is common.

The best English version I've heard is, "Everyone is entitled to their own ridiculous opinion!"

Well, that's a matter of taste.
What would be wrong with it?

  • Because in my opinion "sobre gustos no hay nada escrito" is closer to "nothing is written in stone" - ian-hill Nov 20, 2011 flag

I'll bet it is Ian. Like so many other roundabout ways of saying things in Spanish why should this be any different. There is nothing in writing when it comes to personal taste-to each his own.

The irony of the responses to question is great! So many ways to express this thought...I guess, to each his own!

I think you can also say

''A cada cual lo suyo''


''Cada persona a su propio gusto''

I hope this helps grin

  • I've heard this too: "a cada cual lo suyo." - --Mariana-- Nov 23, 2011 flag
